Years before we all thought to wonder what the fox said, Bahamian trio Baha Men invaded the airwaves with a different mammalian inquiry: Who Let The Dogs Out? Beloved by children everywhere (and at least one guy that I went to college with), the Grammy winning song was seemingly inescapable in late 2000 and early 2001.* Seekonk native Ben Sisto spent seven years researching the song – really! – and he’s got an hour-long multimedia presentation entitled Who Let Who Let The Dogs Out Out that looks at the song’s mysterious origins and the copyright lawsuit that it inspired. Beat Research, Joe DeGeorge (Harry and the Potters), and AS220 will also be talking music copyright and stuff.
*It also inspired one of my favorite Simpsons jokes.
